Ok, so I have been noticing a rise of people interested in the mechanics of the game and actually testing to see if what we thought we know is what it is... I'm making this thread to be a collection of informitive links. No actual information will be here. But hopefully you can find what you need. Here is what I have collected so far.
Damage Types and Resistances
Life Leech, Vitality, %Attach converted to Health and %health reduction attacks
Offensive Ability and Defensive Ability
Melee Attack Mechanics
Shield Block Formula
Str affecting physical Spells Single post
List of Cooldown Timers
Unique Items Drop Chances
Read up on them if you would like. They should be helpful.
You guys have to help me keep this thread updated.
Give me additional links to Posts that are CLEAR and specific. I know a lot of you have some really good posts out there and I figured it is time to collect them.
Special thanks goes to the guys who collected this info, and anyone who helps keep it current and accurate.
